Little did AT&T know how much material they were giving John Legere when they booted the T-Mobile CEO out of their Macklemore concert at CES in Las Vegas last week.
Bellevue-based T-Mobile just announced that it will be presenting its own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis concert at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on Jan. 23, three days in advance of their performance on the Grammy Awards at the Staples Center.
“My appreciation for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis seems to be the worst kept secret in the social hemisphere,” said Legere in a news release announcing the concert “Their ability to shake things up and keep it real for their fans is a lot like the Un-carrier moves we’ve been making in the wireless world, so I’m really excited to team up and present this special performance for all of their fans.”
Of course, Legere also had something to say on Twitter.

Tickets for the concert (capacity 1,400 people) go on sale tomorrow through Ticketmaster. Legere says he also plans to invite AT&T’s CEO.
